I have the egcs version installed. However, it is from potato. When I
try to get the old gcc using apt-get it tells me that I already have the
most current version installed.

I'v given up on 2.0.36, and have moved on to 2.2.1 which is giving me a
whole new set of difficulties :@

Thanks for posting, and I am sure that I'll be posting until I figure
this thing out. I'm off to the archive now.

Thanks again
